Abstract

We demonstrate a method for a tunable optical delay element that allows for minimal residual dispersion and double the relative delay. A tunable delay of 503 ns for 40 Gbit s return-to-zero on–off keying and return-to-zero differential phase-shift keying is shown with a reduction in residual dispersion of 95 % .
